Today on Meaghan’s Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, a team of engineers at the University of California, San Diego are developing algorithms that would allow you to switch out and recharge battery modules in electric cars just like you would with a camera or flashlight.
The project, known as Modular Battery Exchangeand Active Management, or M-BEAM, also has far-reaching implications for mobile and decentralized energy storage systems, such as solar backup and portable generators.
The technology can make energy storage more configurable, promote safety, simplify maintenance and eliminate fossil fuels for these applications.
